pros and cons

The Pros and Cons of an Air Filtration System

Most people strive to keep their homes as clean as possible. We dust, vacuum, and clean messes regularly. We assume after these chores that our house is a relatively healthy place to be. What many of us forget, however, is to clean their air.

The air inside homes tends to be filled with significantly more pollutants than the air outside. Indoor air quality suffers from higher concentrations of various pollutants found in the environment, allergens from dust or pet dander, chemicals from various cleaning products and household items, and mold that is often found near piping.

As people have become increasingly aware of these air quality problems, the market for those looking for some kind of air purification or air filtration system has grown exponentially. Selecting the best option, however, requires understanding the pros and cons of the different systems available.


The biggest benefit for any air filtration system is the clean air that the family will receive. Clean air will help those who suffer from allergies or asthma while also helping everyone within the home be healthier overall.

The systems on the market today have been shown to be quite effective at reducing the pollutants in the indoor environment. For example, HEPA filters successfully remove items as small as .3 microns, which includes smoke, allergens, and dust. Ultraviolet filters are great for removing microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses, which helps keep the home healthier. There are even some that use ozone, the particles naturally occurring in the atmosphere, to eliminate pollutants.


Unfortunately, air filtration systems are not perfect. One of the most common obstacles for homeowners is the cost. Larger air filtration systems are an investment to install, and not all homeowners are aware of their financing options. Each system also tends to specialize, such as ultraviolet light filters excelling at removing microorganisms, so each home must determine what type of pollutant they want to eliminate the most. This is where working with a professional can be helpful.

Air filtration systems are wonderful investments if you’re looking to have a healthier home. If you want to find out which air filtration systems Blanton’s offers and what might work best for your Fayetteville or Raleigh-area home, contact us today.
